THE BIRD ON THE BEACH
The spit at Homer, Alaska, has two great attributes. It hosts one of the great dive bars in America - The Salty Dog - and it also offers a chance to get reasonably close to the bald eagles that fish on the shoreline. Their textural beauty always attracts me and the closer one gets, the more one can understand why the expression 'eagle eye' is on the money. They simply don't miss a trick.
